    When I turn on my computer sometimes the screen goes black. I can barely see anything on the screen. If I put the screen down then lift it and hold it just right it might stay on for awhile.

When i connect an external monitor and use Fn+F3 i was able to see the computer so i guess either the backlight or the inverter is not functional

    Solution at last! if you connect the laptop to an external monitor and press(Fn + F3) does it work? then what you have is a backlight Inverter problem which in this case is broken (this boosts the electrical voltage level ) it retails on the web for about $70.

How do I replace the f1 fuse in my gateway 7326


Will it boot? Fan spin? LED's blink? Sound? Try connecting to a external monitor, does it show desktop? The screen is all black, no cursor at top left? No "ghost Image" in the screen when viewed in a bright light? I would look at the inverter board, backlighting, ribbon cable in the rear of the monitor, the LCD screen, your laptop has some miles on it. Not sure about a fuse on a laptop motherboard, don't see that often. Take a look at this may help you troubleshoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

Hello,

Your monitor problem is causes by the power supply. What is happening is the power supply voltages are not stable, just enough to power the unit up. When you connect it to a video signal the power demands slightly increase and the power supply can't handle it. This is a very common problem with LCD after a few years of use. The issue with the power supply is the capacitors have started to fail. These parts are used to filter the output voltage and when they start to fail the outputs start rippling hence the problem you are having. Here is a link to a repair article that shows how to repair the Gateway FPD1975W monitor.

You could have a faulty CCFL lamp that provides the back light.
If you view the LCD screen at a sharp angle and you can see a dim Windows image. Also if you connect an external monitor to the laptops VGA port power up the external monitor then boot up the laptop and you get a normal Windows image on the monitor, then it is a faulty CCFL lamp.
Replacement CCFL lamps are available from this WEB site.

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

Yes you should try ito adjust the brightness.
Can you see a slight image on the LCD, screen this indicates a backlight problem?
You can connect an external monitor to the video connector on the laptop, then boot it up and see if the is a display on the external monitor. You may have to press the blue Fn + one of the Function key so you can switch the video output to the external monitor. If you get an image on the external monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD backlight. This could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the CCFL lamp is faulty, 80% of the time it is the CCFL lamp that is faulty.
The inverter is easy to replace, the CCFL lamp requires a lot more work and requires soldering skills.

be sure to circle through possible screen.
use FN key + a key with a screen symbol on your keyboard (or check your doc) to switch from main screen to external monitor and back.
sometime some techies use external monitor for pc final test and forgot to restore configuration to laptop screen.
At restart XP is expecting the last used monitor and nothing shows on laptop screen.
try also connecting any external monitor to vga plug.
